The Embarkation of the Pilgrims

by: Micaela Arena, Katrina Avilla, Sarbjit Birdi, Samuel Eluto, Max F. Neuman, and Shahdi Qurashi


We began with a formal analysis of the materials, subject, and stylistic school of the painting. We deepened our analysis by comparing artistic symbolism, religious connotations, and historical fact. The analysis was direct rather than comparative vis a vis the artists' other works and other paintings about this theme.

Doges Palace

by: Jessica Jiang, Maryia Shaban


Claude Monet had a signature established in everyone of his paintings. Not only was he an impressionist, but he created emphasis on light in every landscape. In our primary reflection of the painting we discussed point of view first, setting the scene at which the image was remembered on canvas. We analyzed the use of colors and made a point to focus on the details in unison with the entirety of the paining in order to understand it completely. At a second listening, we realized that we could of expanded more on the artist's preferences, his use of shadow and light, his inspiration, and how it was exhibited with paint.

Number 48 Art Critique

by: Hailey Lam, Julia Duze, & Stephanie Bondietti


During our conversation at the museum, we mainly analyzed what was there in the art piece. Rather than debating the presumed history, we opted to observe only the superficial aspects of the painting. We didn't discuss the significance of each shape or composition of the work, or the juxtaposition of the shapes, but had we the time we would have.

Kiss Me and You’ll Kiss the ‘Lasses

by: Christina Ramos, Frances Shnaidman, Kashaf Syar


We performed a formal analysis of the painting at the Brooklyn Museum which focused primarily on color, lighting, and the historical context of the subject. We took a lot of liberties with our interpretations of the painting and each came away with a different idea. Some of this discourse is represented in our video. If we had more time we could continue to discuss the subject of the painting.

Macaulay Night at the Museum 2016

by: Alex Jones, Anton Khrystenko, Sarah Ustoyev, Daisy Waltermaurer


We did physical and contextual analysis while we were at the museum. We didn't do historical analysis. We would have liked to have done a more in-depth conversation on the physical, contextual, and historical aspects of the painting. This would have given us a better understanding of what we were looking at.

Nydia by Randolph Rogers

by: Sabrina Abrahim, Sarah Coopersmith and Yola Haber


We really looked deeply into Roger's sculpture. We described, interrogated, analyzed the formal properties and talked about the content, historical context and the artist's intentions in creating Nydia. If we had more time, we would have talked more about the purpose and the materials used in the sculpture.

An Out-of-Doors Study

by: Claudine Guerra, Emily Tepe, Simona Popa


We did all of the specified types of analysis with the exception of historical context. If we had more time, we would've tried to analyze the historical background more and tried to decipher more of the artist's meaning. We went into depth regarding description and formal properties, specifically the colors, lines, brush strokes, and general composition of the painting.

Brooklyn Museum- Analysis of Egyptian Exhibit

by: Prashanth Thomas, Yasa Syed, Olga Pinkhasov


During our time at the museum, our analyses focused on the description, formal properties, and historical context of the art. We also included some interrogation, as we were questioning the pieces we were viewing. Our descriptions were slightly lacking artist's intention. With more time, it would be great if we could extend the analysis into what the artist was trying to communicate with the audience and connect that to what we learned. Overall, the Brooklyn Museum was a great experience and we definitely learned about art and ourselves throughout this experience.
